Sylvia Weinstock, the Queen of Cake

Better known as the Queen of Cakes: Sylvia Weinstock, 89-year-old Brooklyn native, was also called the Leonardo Da Vinci of cakes. She lives in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Manhattan and has three daughters. She is famous for her ornate, colorful and realistic confectionery designs. Her wedding cakes are made with high quality ingredients, to ensure taste and freshness: "To be a good pastry chef, you need to know about the material you’re working with besides being creative and making it beautiful", she explains.
